    The Eagles are reportedly not interested in acquiring Jerry Porter.

    Eagles owner Jeff Lurie, ever a student of history, says players now need to pass a "character test" to be members of his team.

    I happen to have a copy of that test right here.

    1.) Do you swear to always worship Donovan McNabb, while he gets more money and accolades than he deserves while constantly choking and failing on the biggest stage?

    2.) Will you take less money once you hit 30? Because we will try to lock you up on the cheap long term, and once you hit that age we just don't value you any more, even if you are still a good player.

    3.) Are cheese steaks delicious?

    They seem to be releasing this test in parts because here is a few more:

    4. Do you promise to stand and cheer with the great crowd of philly when an opponent gets injured?

    5. Do you agree to submit a portion of your paycheck towards the purchase of duracell batteries for every philly fan in the stands?

    6. Do you agree to study TO's every move, and report back to me?

    I think the TO thing will mess with the Eagles psyches for a looooong time.

    I don't. I think that last year was an anomaly, and this year you will see the resurgance of a franchise that has been one of the best run teams in the NFL for 5-6 years now.

    You know that its funny that the Eagles are expressing concerns about a player's character when this was the team that drafted Winston Justice in the 2nd round who fell out of the 1st round due to teams expressing concern about his character issues.

    and we signed the biggest headache in the league and gave a contract extension to a guy that gets shot in the *** every other year. Every team has it's share of idiots.

    What Lurie needs is a character test for Eagle fans.

    I agree. Their defense will improve this year and McNabb will be healthy. That sounds dangerous to me. They should not be discounted.

    ok, so the players need to pass a character test to play in the only stadium that has a court on the premesis.

    oh the bitter irony.

    Exactly, it wasn't TO's fault that Corey Simon was let go with no decent replacement in hand or the poor play of Jevon Kearse or their recent draft busts or their lack of an every down back. Sounds like Mr. Lurie needs to look in the mirror first before calling out his players.

    I wonder why Phonetic-Talon has not responded in this thread? Could it be because he could not pass such a test? :rolleyes:

    Normally, anything Eagles, and he jumps in with both guns blazing! Now, he sees to be out of bullets! :cool:

    But they are Pursuing Ashley Lelie ...according to http://www.philly.com/mld/philly/sports/15215809.htm

    Here's some language ...

    ... reports that the Birds were involved with Denver in a possible trade for wide receiver Ashley Lelie. An Eagles source confirmed the Birds have talked to Denver about Lelie, but denied that anything was imminent. Eagles sources say there is no chance the Birds will trade for Oakland's Jerry Porter...

    Wait ...there's more ...

    4) If you make any attempt to talk to the press without our sanction, we'll have the right to take your bonus money and kick you off the team.

    5) If you are kicked off the team for subsection 4 above, and write a book, we will have 45 percent royalties on any/all of the disrespectful language regarding our franchise.

    6) Match all TD penalty fines levied by the NFL, to this franchise
